And anything you can do with assembler you can do with NAND gates.

I haven't looked that closely at mpl but I have used boost::tuple and I
was frustrated by the fact that its internal recusive layer was hidden

So I can do the the NAND !( a && b ) but getting at tuple::cons is a
little harder.

C++ doesn't hide paradigms it assimilates them :-)
